On today's show we've got news for you of an extremely unique competition event from America that's just celebrated its 5th year of Halloween mayhem.
On the 25th of October, Metro Rock Climbing Centre in Newburyport, Massachusetts saw 207 competitors take to its walls in the 5th annual Blackout Boulder Brawl.
The event sees brightly costumed climbers test their skills in a darkened climbing centre by attempting elaborately designed problems marked out with glow in the dark materials. Designs this year were the handiwork of over 15 MetroRock staff and routesetters.
The problems for the finals looked absolutely outstanding with even more complex designs. In the men's event, first place was taken by Chris Dallarosa while Sarah Sternick claimed the women's title.
It's a novel way to get into the Halloween spirit, that's for sure. Thanks to Backmattress Media for the footage, we can't wait to see what you guys come up with next year.
